Faced with numerous announcements made by LG, Samsung and Nokia earlier this year on new models marketed in 2009, Sony Ericsson had to react quickly in order not to fall even further behind by competition in recent years is become increasingly aggressive in the market for mobile phones and smartphones.
The Japan-Swedish firm finally finally respond by launching in the second half of 2009 new models, among which are the Satio a very attractive smartphone, which announces a very clear shift in strategy from Sony Ericsson.
Touch Fully integrating the Symbian OS, a 12 Megapixels Optical ... the Satio has anything to get out and raise some concerns for competition.
The discovery Satio Sony Ericsson has started with good impressions: the storage box is small enough, and various accessories are pretty well sorted.
The grip of the Sony Ericsson Satio is good. The smartphone is a bit heavy, which probably results from materials used for the hull, which is mainly composed of steel, which makes Satio fairly robust.
A very big surprise (rather nice) was observed while watching the unit's Satio: is the writing on the door that lets you insert the memory card: "Micro SD"! This is a first for a Sony Ericsson, which has hitherto always preferred memory cards Memory Stick Standard, Duo or M2 from Sony.
The extraction of the casing is fairly straightforward. The SIM card fits into a sort of small plastic tray (a plastic that appears to be of very poor quality) that is pulled from under the non-extractable part of the casing with a small tab after you extract the battery . Inserting the SIM card seems pretty easy, cons by its extraction requires considerable skill.
By cons, no slot is available to store a stylus. And because the stylus attached via a small strap at the Sony Ericsson Satio, as is the case on most models tactile market. I find it really not practical at all to have an object suspended on a string that ballad in every sense when handling a mobile, and more, is likely to hit the screen if you are not careful. Suddenly, the pen will not leave the package, and remain in the cabinet of the mobile. Wooyoo ...!
